Health Care Providers Can Help Promote Breastfeeding
Health care providers play a primary role in promoting exclusive and long-term breastfeeding and supporting the success of
this important public health initiative.
Enthusiastic support and involvement of pediatricians in the promotion and
practice of breastfeeding is essential to the achievement of optimal infant and child health, growth, and development.
